about

an EP I decided to put together after improvising "sometimes I need to hide" on the beach at the lake where I was camping at the time. Said beach is also where I took the album cover photo!

to sum it up: tragic summer vibes and angst, the usual expectations from me.

the concept of the album was born on 7/1 and i finished recording the last track (swimwear) 8/19! this has been a really fun really stressful summer project and i'm so excited to share! please feel free to do so also, and download this EP (or any individual track you're into) for free!

Track Name: swimwear
Memories are stab wounds but sometimes you need to soak in them
Just don't forget your swimwear
Here, a crimson bikini, not meant to be morbid
Simply something to remember you by

I miss you baby
Your corpse doesn't taste as sweet
Blood drained out and I'm all lonely
Keep me warm, be my treat

You hurt me bad when you hurt yourself
You hurt yourself but didn't think about me
Now I only think of you
Now I start to think like you

There's blood on your bikini
The sun shines down in a mockery
Guess you'll need new swimwear
And some new skin
There's blood on my hands
I'm shaking with, something
Guess I'm down a girlfriend
I'll swim in your red and my gin

Memories are stab wounds but sometimes you need to soak in them
Just don't forget your swimwear
Here, a crimson bikini, not meant to be morbid
Simply something to remember you by

Perhaps you didn't realize
That you would stain my (brain)pool
Perhaps you didn't care
Perhaps you're a fucking tool

I'll never know
I'll never know

Don't forget your swimwear
I say because I care
Don't forget your band-aids
I can't always be there

I miss you, you know
If you hear me I've screamed myself numb
Screamed myself dumb
I can't talk anymore
You can't breathe anymore
Mine catches

There's blood on your bikini
The sun shines down in a mockery
Guess you'll need new swimwear
And some new skin
There's blood on my hands
I'm shaking with, something
Guess I'm down a girlfriend
I'll swim in your red and my gin

Memories are stab wounds but sometimes you need to soak in them
Just don't forget your swimwear
Here, a crimson bikini, not meant to be morbid
Simply something to remember you by

Don't forget your swimwear
I say because I care
Don't forget your band-aids
I can't always be there

I wasn't there
Now neither are you

I miss you baby
Your corpse doesn't taste as sweet
Blood drained out and I'm all lonely
Keep me warm, be my treat

Did I not treat you well enough?
Did my words bounce off you?
I love you baby,
But I hate what your knife's done to you

I miss you baby
Your corpse doesn't taste as sweet
Blood drained out and I'm all lonely
Keep me warm, be my treat

Did I not treat you well enough?
Did my words bounce off you?
I love you baby,
But I hate what your knife's done to you

Memories are stab wounds but sometimes you need to soak in them
Just don't forget your swimwear
Here, a crimson bikini, not meant to be morbid
Simply something to remember you by
Not that I need help remembering
Track Name: sometimes I need to hide
for you I braved the ocean
for you I fought the tide
but when I come looking,
looking for you
all you ever do is hide

so goodbye, goodbye,
goodbye

I'll never love anyone
again
I say it
and I mean it
but I think I might be lying

because
I am so weak to a smile
and a promise

but I braved the ocean
and I fought the tide

but where were you
why do you always hide?

I wish I was like you
so fearless
and empty
but I'm gentle
and needy
and I'm so afraid of
being
alone
don't you ever worry that you'll die alone?
it seems like you don't,
you're so sure of yourself

but I'm not sure of anything
I'm so obsessed with everything
and you, you just feel nothing
and you hide

so I can't brave the ocean
though I've tried
I can't do it
if I wanna stay
alive

so goodbye, goodbye
Track Name: BEACHED
You're going nowhere
You were born in a small town
I'm sorry baby
I didn't mean to bring you down

It's just that it's the truth,
isn't it? And you deserve to know.
You've got big dreams, honey
but they just can't grow.
You've gotta let it go.

I'll kiss your knees when you fall down
Because I love you
but I can't pretend, I'm sorry about
what you have to go through

You're stuck here
You're anxious
You're landlocked
You're at a standstill
I know how you feel my darling
Because that's just how
I feel

You're going nowhere
You were born in a small town
I'm sorry baby
I didn't mean to bring you down

But it really seems like
The truth is bringing us down
And I really think that
The world just wants us tied down

It really seems like
The truth is bringing us down
And I really think that
The world just wants us tied down

Maybe you'll get somewhere, sweetie
Maybe you could
And maybe for the both of us
You should

Maybe you have a big future
Bright lights and all that
You are free to try, at least
I'll give you that

I hope the world takes you in
And gives you a chance
I hope the world takes you in
Or at least doesn't fight back

I'll kiss your knees when you fall down
Because I love you
but I can't pretend, I'm sorry about
what you have to go through

I'm sorry about
What we've gone through

I'm rooting for you
Track Name: Little Blue Wagon
if I asked you who you loved
you would not answer
because strangers
don't talk that way

you look at me and I feel naked
I thought strangers weren't supposed to
look at each other that way

why do you still talk about 2013?
why do you recall those events?
it's like a tragedy I don't even want to
begin to think about

but since you feel so innocent
you think you can
does it not hurt you at all?

you carry around your lies
in a little blue wagon
but that's all they are
but that's all they are

you came out of that war
with not a single scar
I'll show you where mine are
in your little blue wagon

why do you make me out to be a demon?
is it because you cannot stand the opposite?
why do you show up to my best friend's party
that I couldn't go to?

what if I was there?
would you stare?
would you dare?
would I care?

why do you have to be so plastic?
I just want to see you hurt
at least once
every single movement on my part feels drastic
and you are never alone, never alone
you always smile

and I'm always alone, always alone
been that way for a while

but you just
carry around your little blue wagon
like an accessory
you pretend, you pretend
that it was all just about me
you didn't do anything
you never do anything
you didn't do anything
you never do anything
you never do anything
you didn't do anything
you never do anything
I musta did everything

now you carry around your little blue wagon
and your feet don't touch the ground
how does it feel to be so saintlike?
how does it feel now?

why do I have to be the criminal?
why do I hold the knife?
why do you still tell my secrets?
..you said I was gonna be your wife
that's tucked in your little blue wagon
never to come out
that's tucked in your little blue wagon
that's where I live now
that's where I live now
that's how I die now
by your hand, by your rumours

little blue wagon
don't, don't, don't fail him now
Track Name: Sea Me
You fucked me over
but I think you know that
You never said sorry
Hope you're aware of that

You knew more about me
Than most people do
You should've known by now
That I can never forgive you

Why don't you love me enough
To stay away from him
Did I not love you enough
To make you trust my word

I think I might be
Drowning
And nobody, especially you,
Can sea me
So sea me

But I don't want you back
I just wanna feel like I can hold my ground
But right now
I feel like crying

You texted me
The other day
And I felt attacked over a "hey,
How are you doing?"

If you did the same exact thing
months ago
it would be simple
it would be kindness
I wouldn't be scared
I wouldn't be scared

The more I reminisce the more I realize
You saw my illness as lies
And that hurts me

I don't think I can breathe

Sometimes it feels like I never got better
Sometimes it feels like I can't
Sometimes it feels like I never got better
Sometimes it feels like I can't

I thought I was there for you
But you don't sea me
You didn't sea me
Now I'm drowning
I need to learn how to swim

Because people betray you
People lie to you
People do the things she did
And make you feel stupid

I thought I was there for you
But you don't sea me
You didn't sea me
Now I'm slipping

I think I might be
Drowning
And nobody, especially you,
Can sea me
So sea me

But I don't want you back
I just wanna feel like I can hold my ground
But right now
I feel like crying
I'm hurting
But

I need to learn how to swim
Because somethin like this
will happen
Again

People like you
will creep too close
again
and leave me without breath

Sometimes it feels like it'll get better
